Duerme Negrito

Paracho guitarDuerme Negrito

Athualpa Yupanqui collected this somewhere on the Venezuelan/Colombian border.

Jeremy says: “I first heard it sung by the great Chilean singer Victor Jara – the artist who inspired not just the left in his country, but people around the world. It’s an exquisitely beautiful little lullaby with a bitter edge.”
